SECTION A. Description of project activity A.1. Purpose and general description of project activity >> UAL INDUSTRIES LTD 1 proposes to undertake the project activity at its new unit UAL-KON_CRETE, which entails manufacturing of the Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (hereafter referred to as AAC) blocks and panels with an energy efficient brick manufacturing technology supplied by HESS, Netherland. The prime objective of the project activity is to produce a high-quality, load-bearing and well insulating building material by adopting an efficient low energy intensive brick production process instead of a high energy intensive brick production process like Clay Brick Bull‟s trench kilns (BTKs) and positively impact the energy consumption pattern both at the brick production level and at the building operation level. While attaining the prime objective the project activity will also (1) Reduce GHG emissions associated to energy consumption (both fossil fuel and electricity) in the high energy intensive BTKs by an energy efficient brick making technology. (2) Reduce air pollution by introducing robust air treatment facilities in the project activity; the clay brick kiln technology is adopted by an unorganized sector with very poor air treatment facilities; and (3) Enhance the use of fly ash, an industrial -waste, as an ingredient of building material. The AAC block is a steam-cured mix of sand or pulverized fuel ash (PFA), cement, lime, anhydrite (gypsum) and an aeration agent. The high-pressure steam-curing in autoclaves achieves a physically and chemically stable and light weight product, comprising myriads of tiny non-connecting air bubbles which give AAC its diverse qualities and makes it such an excellent insulating material. Production process of AAC blocks does not involve sintering or kiln heating for blocks consolidation and thus completely eliminates the burning of fossil fuels as required in the clay brick production by adopting the green waste mixing technology in PFA slurry process, ultimately contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The core of this technology is the AAC blocks composition and its chemistry, with fly ash from thermal plants mixed with lime and gypsum, which enable the blocks to acquire the mechanical properties required during the hydration and curing process without being sintered. The production process consists of the following steps: 1. Dosing and mixing of fly ash with lime, Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC), stabilisers and gypsum at a high dosing speed at very high accuracy. 2. Casting and rising/pre curing of the mixture to enable the fresh mix to rise and harden to a firm green cake with the volume of the mould. 3. Tilting mould cakes with the tilt manipulator on to a cutter machine and oiling to prevent the sticking of the green cakes for reuse. 4. Horizontal and cross cutting the cakes by cutter which are equipped with broken-wire-detection system. 5. Milling and back tilting onto a cooking frame. 6. Green separation of cut cakes by passing through the green separator to avoid sticking of cut layers during autoclaving and eliminating further mechanical separation in white state. 7. Curing with a steam at pressure of approximately 12 Bar in autoclave system for 12 hrs period. 8. A post autoclaving, after buffering and de-stacking of hardened cakes from the cooking frames to the packaging line for final packaging.

Clay brick manufacturing, an alternative brick manufacturing technology and the baseline scenario as identified in section B.4 below involves two key processes: (a) producing green bricks and (b) sintering/firing the green bricks in a kiln. The sintering process requires huge amount of thermal energy inputs. Production of AAC blocks and panels does not require any sintering process as the project activity completely eliminates the burning of fossil fuel as required in the clay brick production. So the amount of such energy which is required in the project activity scenario is much lower than the thermal energy required in clay brick manufacturing process. Therefore, the project activity enables total energy reduction and its associated GHG reduction due to change in brick production process. The machines will be supplied by HESS, Netherland. These types of machines require electricity and/or fuel oil as fuels for their steam generation and operation. The consumption of such forms of energy (electricity and/or Fuel oil in high efficiency boiler) however is much lower compared to the thermal energy consumed for production of burnt clay bricks. AAC block technology needs cement and lime as process inputs, which are sources of emissions during their production. However, such emissions are negligible when compared to the emissions from baseline activity, thereby leading to emission reductions. Contribution to sustainable development The project activity contributes to sustainable development and mitigation of climate change through the following: Environmental Benefits: Reduction of energy resources consumption: Since there is no sintering or cooking in the project activity, this technology is more efficient in terms of energy consumption and results in lower energy consumption than the clay brick manufacturing. Reduction of fossil fuels consumption: Clay brick manufacturing process are fossil fuel based technologies, especially coal, in India. With the implementation of the proposed project activity, consumption of fossil fuels for building material manufacturing will be avoided, thus contributing to reduce GHG emissions. Utilisation of a waste materials from other industries as raw materials: The raw materials used in the project activity are mostly (to the extent of 67%) waste materials or by products from other industries. Pulverized fuel ash (PFA), is a waste that creates both problems regarding its disposal and environmental degradation due to its potential to pollute both air and water. Indian coals have very high ash content to the tune of 25 and 45%. However, coal with an ash content of around 40% is predominantly used in India for thermal power generation. As a consequence, a huge amount of fly ash is generated in thermal power plants, causing several disposal-related problems. According to the Annual Report 2008-09 from the Ministry of Environmental and Forests of India, the annual generation of fly ash is expected to be around five hundred million tonnes by 2031-322.With this alternative use of fly ash, the problem of the management of this waste will be slightly reduced. Reduction of resources consumption: fly ash utilisation in the proposed project activity will contribute to savings in natural resources, mainly the land (and top soil), water, coal and limestone. The utilisation of fly ash in the manufacture of building blocks, as in the proposed project activity, will release considerable amounts of land. Also, water will be saved due to reduced fly ash disposal from thermal power plants. Reduction of waste generation in the manufacturing process: No waste material is generated in the manufacturing process of AAC blocks and panels. On the contrary, waste materials from other industries are used but no wastes are generated.

Social benefits: Improvement of air quality in the nearby region: With the avoidance of fossil fuel combustion in the proposed project activity, the exhaust gas emissions and direct air pollution will be substantially reduced in the neighbouring region.

Since the project activity involves setting up new facility for production of bricks by adopting an alternative energy efficient technology and entails GHG emission reductions with reference to the system(s) which would have otherwise been used in the brick production facility in the absence of the project activity, para 10 of the methodology AMS-III.Z Version 03 point (b) would apply. Therefore baseline emissions are the fossil fuel consumption related emissions (fossil fuel consumed multiplied by an emissions factor) associated with the system(s), which would have otherwise been used, in absence of project activity. For the project activity case the average annual historical baseline fossil fuel consumption value and the baseline brick production rate shall be determined as that which would have been consumed and produced, under an appropriate baseline scenario. Building materials in India may include Burnt Clay Bricks, Cement Concrete Blocks, Fly ash bricks and Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Blocks (manufactured in the project activity). However it is worthwhile to note that Burnt clay bricks continue to be the most popular form of walling material in the country. India is the second largest producer of clay fired bricks, accounting for more than 10 percent of global production. They are cheap and have traditionally been believed to be the most suitable walling material for building construction. Although alternative building materials such as cement concrete block and fly ash bricks, have been introduced in the recent past, burnt clay bricks account for more than 95% of the total market for walling material in larger parts of the country. This can be seen from the data presented below (Source: A study on “ Cost Effective Building Materials & Technologies” undertaken by Holtec Consulting Private Limited in the year 2004 on behalf of Building Materials Technology Promotion Council, Ministry of Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation, Government of India).

The project activity product output AAC Blocks‟s awareness levels were very low and are yet to penetrate in the markets. As stated above the prime reason why clay brick accounts for 95% of the share is that they are cheap and have traditionally been believed to be the most suitable walling material for building construction. This can be demonstrated from the table 2.2 given below: Table B.4.2: Cost of 100 sq ft area and 4 inch wall with different walling materials

From the above table 4.1 and table 4.2, we may conclude that use of Burnt Clay Bricks is the cheapest alternative and has been the prevailing practice. In the absence of the project activity, i.e. in the baseline scenario, it is expected that the burnt clay brick manufacturing using conventional technologies will continue to meet the walling material demand in the country resulting substantial CO2 emissions. As per the para 10 point (b) of the methodology „If the baseline scenario identified includes different technologies with different levels of energy consumption, a weighted average energy use of these technologies can be considered for determining the baseline emissions of the facility or facilities.‟ Production of burnt clay bricks employs different technologies with different levels of coal consumption. However some technologies are not comparable and some are legally not acceptable. The brick manufacturing technologies were analyzed to determine the appropriate baseline selection for burnt clay brick manufacturing. Bull‟s trench kilns (BTKs) and clamps are two prominent firing technologies used for brick making in India. Kiln type Comments *Typical production capacity range for Kiln Type: Clamps 0.5 – 10 (lakh bricks per year) Clamps are used for smaller production levels. A variety of fuels such as coal, firewood, various types of agricultural residues and dung cakes are used in clamps. Large variations are observed in the shape, size, stacking of bricks and firing techniques in clamps. Generally, energy efficiencies of clamps are lower. Therefore, Clamps has been considered amongst the technologies that are a part of the realistic baseline option. *Typical production capacity range for Kiln Type: BTK–Fixed 30 – 100 (lakh bricks per year) chimney§ The BTK is a continuous type kiln and has higher production capacities. Coal is the main fuel used in BTKs. It also has better energy efficiency compared to clamps. FC BTK Accounts for more than 70% of

total brick production in India. (Reference: Therefore, FC-BTK can be considered as a realistic baseline option. “Although there are many brick production technologies existent but almost all the brick kilns in entire Varanasi cluster are of the traditional coal fired fixed chimney Bull‟ s Trench Kilns (BTK) type, with fixed natural draft chimneys except a few kilns which are operating using induced draft fans for better airflow in the firing/ cooling zone.” - BEE, 2010, Detailed Project Report on Induced Draft Fan in Brick Industry, Brick SME Cluster, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh (India), New Delhi: Bureau of Energy Efficiency; Detail Project Report No.: VRN/BRK/IDF/04. Therefore, BTK-Fixed Chimney has been considered amongst the technologies that are a part of the realistic baseline option *Typical production capacity range for Kiln Type: BTK– 20 – 80 (lakh bricks per year) Moving chimney Regulatory interventions in the form of stricter emission standards and non-approval of new MCBTKs have been made since 1990‟s in order to control the increasing pollution from the brick industry (http://www.cpcb.nic.in/standard8.htm ). The regulatory intervention has been further strengthened with a Supreme Court ruling, which has banned the use of MCBTK nationwide. Therefore, BTK-Moving Chimney has not been considered amongst the technologies that are a part of the realistic baseline option *Typical production capacity range for Kiln Type: High 30 – 50 (lakh bricks per year) draft/zig-zag firing HDKs are very limited in number (only 200) as they have not been widely accepted by brick entrepreneurs. One of the major considerations in operation of HDKs is the use of forced draught which is created using electrically operated fans. In view of the highly unreliable electricity supply situation in rural areas, the issue of reliable operation remained a high concern for brick entrepreneurs. Backup supply of electricity with captive sources is not financially viable. The entrepreneurs who earlier opted for this technology have already closed down their HDK plants. Therefore, HDK has not been considered amongst the technologies that are a part of the realistic baseline option *Typical production capacity range for Kiln Type: Vertical shaft 5 – 40 (lakh bricks per year) brick kiln (VSBK) Regulatory authorities have been promoting VSBK technology since it is considered to be one of the efficient technologies amongst those available. However due to several barriers, the number of plants using VSBK is extremely limited. In March 2005, as a part of the Community Development C Fund, Technology and Action for Rural Advancement (TARA) was to facilitate installation of 100 VSBKs across 4 states. TARA was to provide the technology package and existing kiln owners the finance. Though these projects were considered as CDM projects, VSBK has been considered amongst the technologies that are a part of the realistic baseline option *Comprehensive industry document with emission standards, guidelines and stack height regulation for vertical shaft brick kilns (VSBK) viz-a-viz pollution control measures, COINDS/71/2007, CPCB, MoEF, May 2007. As per the para 10 point (b) of the methodology, since the baseline scenario identified includes Clamps, FC-BTK and VSBK technologies with different levels of energy consumption, a weighted average energy use of the Clamps, FC-BTK and VSBK technologies have been considered for determining the annual production specific emission factor and thereafter the baseline emissions of the project activity facility.
